The TLV760 is an integrated linear voltage regulator featuring operation from an input as high as 30V. The TLV760 has a maximum dropout of 1.2V at the full 100mA load across operating temperature. Standard packaging for the TLV760 is the 3-pin SOT-23 package. The TLV760 is designed to bias digital and analog circuits in applications that are subject to voltage transients and spikes up to 30V - for example, appliances and automation applications. The device has robust internal thermal protection, which protects itself from potential damage caused by conditions like short to ground, increases in ambient temperature, high-load, or high dropout events.
The TLV760 is a bipolar device with quasi LDO architecture. Being a bipolar device the dropout voltage of the device does not change significantly with output load current. The device has a maximum dropout across temperature of 1.2 V at 100-mA load current, which is a significant improvement over the traditional LM78Lxx devices.
